This popular Southeast Asian snack is now available to you online! Shrimp chips, or krupuk as they're known in Indonesia, are made by mixing prawns and starch into a deliciously fried up chip. Orchid's assorted varieties of the Crustacean filled crackers are diverse, highlighted in the Hot & Spicy flavor we offer above. Shrimp chips make for a great on-the-go snack and cost relatively little compared to their tortilla and potato chips popular in the west.

I like these a lot. They're very light and crispy. However, as with a few of the products I've purchased here, they say "hot and spicy" and I'm not finding anything hot and spicy about any of them, including this one. These are really good chips, but if you're looking for something with a bit of a kick, try something else.

I'll admit, when I read "Shrimp chips" what popped in my head as someone taking shrimp and slicing them thin and deep frying them into hard little disks of some kind.
Far from it. These tasty snacks do have a mild shrimp flavor, and a wonderful crunch. they don't go stale as easily as potato chips or other snacks in humid weather. If you've ever eaten the american product "Muncho's" they are a bit similiar to them in texture, but a much more interesting taste!
I've become a big fan of these. They are a bit spicy, but not "eat one chip and drink a gallon of water" spicy, it s a very pleasant level of spice. The other flavors (regular shrimp, onion and garlic, and pea and lentil) are also quite good.
I do not know for certain if this qualifies as a "gluten free" food, but looking at the ingredients I don't see wheat products (unless they are hidden in the generic "spice" term.) I know for many people who have to eat gluten free finding snacks is difficult. You'll need to double check for yourself depending on your level of gluten tolerance, but if you can eat them, I highly recommend them!
